Peyrassol Cuvee des Commandeurs Red 75cl
Fully matured vines which provides grapes for this light, fruity blend. It has a slight predominance of Syrah, which provides the floral, peppery notes, while Cabernet Sauvignon adds body.
Vinification and Aging
Gathered by hand and vinified separately, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon are de-stemmed and crushed. They are vinified in the traditional way, with two weeks‚Äô fermentation, then aged for 12 months in stainless steel vats.
With a fine purple colour, this blend immediately reveals the presence of Syrah, which dominates the nose with aromas of red fruits, rose and white pepper. The palate has a fine structure built on ripe, velvety tannins. Robust and fruity, it boasts a lightly spiced flavour with a fine peppery finish.
Ready to drink as soon as it is bottled, it makes a fine accompaniment to grilled dishes, beef carpaccio in olive oil, veal saut√© or stuffed Mediterranean vegetables.
